Raxiom 13' lights question?

So, I have the raxiom gen 5 lights and was thinking about something. They have built in resistors for both lights' LEDs to work. Hypothetically, I should be able to run led turn signal/park lamp bulbs without adding resistors? My logic can sometimes be horridly wrong lol, so anybody who has experience with this feel free to chime in.

Raxiom 13' lights question?

I understand what you are saying.

Unfortunately the cars lighting system is wired parallel, not in series. Otherwise when one bulb went out they all would.

This means that just because our taillights have resistors on them it isn't resisting the whole system.

My led third brake lamp wanted to stay on at all times and my turn signal LEDs rapidly flashed after the gen 5 tail light install. Had to put 1k, 2 watt resistors on them.
